when people call this \"slow\" I think it says more about them than the film. Nice to see scenes with people walking in the city center and not a car-chase in sight.

Brendan Gleeson is sensational as the world-weary, been there, done that hired killer, who seems comfortable with and somewhat resigned to his chosen line of work. He is both bemused and dismayed by Colin Farrell, who is riveting as a haunted. conflicted man who is extremely uncomfortable in his profession. The interplay between these characters is fascinating. Ralph Fiennes character is two

Sometimes I wonder where these dark murder mystery films derive their plots! The accents and scenery of this Belgium city plus twisted endless turns make this a better than average film. Thank god for the Golden Globes otherwise I might have never seen this film. Colin Farrell didn?t win me over with his acting because he could shed a few tears, and I sure hope he didn?t LIVE! Rather actor

Those who know McDonagh's work know a vein of darkness will run deeply through the comedy. It has seldom been darker. Or funnier. He has made a hit-man movie in which you don't know what will happen and can't wait to find out. Every movie should be so cliched. Full Review

A dark comedy with a melancholy streak and punchy sense of humor. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
Sharply written, superbly acted, funny and even occasionally touching. Full Review
Dana Stevens
A jolly mess of a movie. Overplotted, choppy, and contrived, it nonetheless has a curious vitality that makes you wonder where McDonagh will go next. Full Review
James Berardinelli
The acting is top-notch. Colin Farrell, who seems to be gravitating increasingly toward smaller films, effectively channels his manic energy. He and Brendan Gleeson display chemistry in the Odd Couple vein, occasionally giving rise to instances of humor. Ralph Fiennes plays one of the most twisted roles of his career. Full Review
